[Resuming in-person as before lockdown. Both those and Zoom sessions usually to be held separately on Sundays... but this one is hybrid!] This practice session will be facilitated by Jay Last and the theme will be "Expressing Needs", related to Chapter 5 – "Taking Responsibility for Our Feelings" from Marshall Rosenberg's book "Nonviolent Communication: A Language of Life".
